Tropicana Field Is Still An Embarrassment

Last night, Bartolo Colon was cruising along when Curtis Granderson lost the ball in the roof of Tropicana Field and a routine pop fly turned into a single. That opened up a two-run inning for Tampa Bay and they ended up winning 3-2. Again, it’s 2011. Why are we still losing the ball? This isn’t the Metrodome circa 1991. If the Devil Rays want to be a marquee team, they should fix this somehow. It’s not baseball at the highest level. If there’s a chance this could happen during the Playoffs, they should just play at a high school field. It’d be better than this place. And what’s with the rubber blasting up every time the ball hits the turf at the Trop? It’s like there’s a freaking geyser in the outfield.
